Get To Know Your Host: Kristen McNulty
Kristen has been with the MAD Christian Radio Show since day one. Growing up she loved listening to Christian bands like DC Talk and Audio Adrenaline, but was surprised at how many of her friends and classmates were unaware of the kind of Christian music that was out there. At the age of 18 she decided to do something about it and had the crazy idea of starting a radio show in her hometown of Timmins, Ontario. A few months later, the Making A Difference (MAD) Christian Radio Show was born.
Today Kristen has been hosting and producing the show for over 11 years and she still loves every minute of it!
Kristen calls Timmins, Ontario home and is an entreprenur with her own website design and media company Jumpstart Media. In her free time Kristen loves to take photos, read, write, fish, travel, play sports and spend time in the great outdoors.
